Mandarin Travellers Stage 2

Course Outline

Designed for students wanting to further their skills in Mandarin after completing the Mandarin Travellers Stage 1. The course is built on basic knowledge of the language and has been structured to improve your confidence in writing and speaking Mandarin. Culture, conversation and grammar will be covered in a social and stimulating environment.

Students will also expand their ability to deal with everyday situations such as talking about family, sport, holidays and much more. This course also will place more of an emphasis on pronunciation and intonation and will assist the student in making their trip to China, be it for work or leisure purposes, much more engaging and exciting.

Please Bring

Please note: There may be an additional expenditure for a textbook, for new students, if you have not already purchased a book for Travellers Stage 1, handouts will be used in addition to textbook .
